It isn’t unusual for those in the military and stationed in Hawaii to sell a used car, whether due to deploying or PCS (permanent change of station) orders which mean moving – sometimes across the country. Moving to the U.S. mainland from overseas, moving overseas, or the fact that you don’t want to drive two cars cross-country or ship the one you have; there are more reasons than you can count for wanting to sell a used car for cash in Honolulu, especially when you’re in the Air Force, Army, or other arm of the military.
What to do? Before you decide the best option for selling your vehicle, you’ll want to do a few things.
Make it look as good as possible, whether you’re selling to a dealer or individual. Just as many people “stage” their homes for selling, clearing away the clutter and giving everything a good cleaning – you’ll want to do the same for your vehicle. If you don’t have time to do it yourself, consider a facility that offers washing and detail services.
Make repairs IF it makes sense financially. You don’t want to make substantial repairs that will essentially eat up most of the profit you’re seeking, so focus on those minor cosmetic repairs, dings, or anything that could impact safe operation of the car.
Do you want to sell to an individual or to a dealer? You probably know that selling a used car to an individual generally results in more money, however it’s also more time consuming and requires a lot more effort. If you’re limited in terms of time and need to sell quickly, it’s best to work with a dealer such as CarMark Hawaii.
